Talladega Nights

We watched Talladega Nights Sunday evening and were pleased, at least, that we chose to pay the reduced matinee price. Maybe I’ve outgrown the comedic pratfall and slapstick routines of Larry, Moe, and Curly, but I’d like to think that Talladega Nights just wasn’t that funny. My wife and I…Continue Reading

Java Log

When first presented with the idea of a java log, one may summon visions of bad dietary intake resulting in compacted bowels and inevitably, the java log. That is not the case and I beg you to stick around to discover the beauty behind what you just thought might very…Continue Reading

Today’s Fun Fact

What’s the tallest mountain on Earth? If you answered Mt. Everest, you’re 1/3 right. The truest answer would be to list all three mountains given the tallest status by the various interpretations of measurement. Tallest from sea level: Mt.

Federal Bureau of Inefficiency

A romantic notion in the recesses of my mind really loves the F.B.I., C.I.A., and the like. I like spy novels. I like James Bond. I like super heroes fighting super villans. However, the real world of federal investigative services is far different than the portrayal delivered through metaphor and…Continue Reading

Newness at MARTA

We’ve ridden MARTA a couple times over the last couple weekends and noticed quite a bit of awesome new technology. They’ve traded the old turnstile gates in for Star Trek fanciness. The best improvement made was to the ticketing system. The new system allows you to buy your passes (the…Continue Reading

The Family Portrait

If you’ll focus you’re attention to the bottom of the page, you can see what humors me at nearly 2:00am. It has been a while now since I’ve played with my tablet (an electronic writing pen device for those who don’t know) and I don’t know why. I’m working up…Continue Reading

Prison Love

My good friend, A. (for Anonymous), was recently the target of a very strange package indeed. Being a female and having some public recognition, she is apparently an ideal target for some pen-pal romance from beyond the gates of prison. The package came to her work place, where the perp.…Continue Reading

Lady in the Water

M. Night Shyamalan has created yet another masterpiece to add to his considerable titles so far. I know I’ve heard some poor reviews on the film, but I’m hear to tell you that M. Night fans will not be dissappointed. My wife and I decided he creates films that appeal…Continue Reading

Awareness Training from the Gov

If you’ve become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand, remember to close the window. No one wants to see that shit. The U.S. government wants to teach its citizens about the threats and remediation measures necessary during a terrorist attack. To do so, they’re built Ready.gov to help out…Continue Reading

Monster House, A Review

We took Balthazar to see “Monster House” this past weekend. He really enjoys watching movies, so when there’s something appropriate on for his attention span, we love to take him. This time was a little different. He’s been watching the previews on TV and specifically requested “Monster House.” We were…Continue Reading
